G570 AND WIN 8

2013-10-28, 16:51 PM

Guys,

am NOT an expert, plzz help me!

 

I did a clean install win 8 pro 9200 build. now I have following problems and questions:

 

1. I bought my laptop in August 2011. I used win 7 so far, till last week. Never updated BIOS! Now, should I update BIOS for better integration on Win 8?

 

2. the card reader sucks! It did the same on win 7. After upgrade, it continues. Do you think there is hardware issu? I installed latest card reader driver for win 8 "rtcr02083264.exe"; Rebooted after install... prob is still there.. Whenever I insert a SDHC first it prompts to format the card (screenshot)

or if I eject and retry, it says

It does not detect the card..

The same card works flawlessly on all other systems.. PLEASE HELP!!

 

3. fn F5 key combination is not working!! Although Fn F2 and a few others are doing okay!

 

 

thanks in advance..

YES. Get yourself to the latest BIOS, check for missing updates (Lenovo and MS), then check for missing drivers in Device Manager and post a follow up on remaining issues you are having - including your card reader issue.

 

You'll need to install the Lenovo Hot Key drivers using Windows 7 compatability mode to regain that FnF5 functionality in Windows 8..

Hi PFM,

 

I am running Win 8 64-bit.. the latest BIOS update I found for G570 is at: http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/40cn33ww_64.exe

But there is no one specified for Win 8. It is mentioned there that this is for Win 7 64-bit! Will it work okay for my system?

I have no idea how and if OS is dependent on BIOS. So just before going ahead thought of checking out if I am going to do the right thing and not messing around for more trouble..

 

Thanks again!

Hello,
There now seems to be no unrecognized device in device management window, but the card reader does not work. Screenshot of device manager follows:

I updated the bios to "40cn32ww_64bit.exe".. Only after the update I needed to re-enter the network security key for my router. It seemed to have deleted this..
I installed the Lenovo Energy Management application "caez29ww.exe" which seem to create conflicts. It shows the following window:

Also, the battery is not charging beyond 32% after this! "Getting help online" option is not of any help though..

 

Thanks for support!
